Description

Named for banker and merchant Elbridge Keith, this mansion is one of only five remaining from the heyday of the Prairie Avenue District. The Victorian Chateauesque home combines Neo-Classical and French motifs and includes 30 rooms and a large coach house. The family that has owned the house since the 1970s has lovingly restored it—transforming it into a grand event space and several well-appointed apartments.
